to grow the economy, shrink government and create confidence that we are not greece. and, oh, heck, my friend steve kroft lobbed a bunch of softballs at president obama and hillary clinton in his "60 minutes" interview last night. and you know what, folks, we still do not know what happened on that tragic, awful night in benghazi when four people were killed. the administration spun two separate stories, we still don't know the narrative. all that, the "kudlow report" starts right now. >>> first up tonight, it could prove to be the most significant immigration reform in years. bipartisan group of four democratic and four republican senators unveiling their blueprint this afternoon for border security, guest worker cards, more foreign brainiacs and employer verification, maybe even a path to citizenship. cnbc's own eamon javers joins us now with the details. good evening, eamon. >> well, we've almost gotten out of practice at watching bipartisan groups of senators hold press conferences here in washington. that's not something we're used to seeing. in recent months, anyway. but the sena

's economy, few families have a stay-at-home mother. in fact, 71% of mothers today are in the labor force. they are major contributors to their family's income. two-thirds of mothers bring home at least a quarter of their family's earning, and more than four of ten families with children, a woman is the majority, or sole breadwinner. that means in today's economy, when a mother earns less than her male colleagues, her family -- her family -- must sacrifice basic necessities as well as facing greater difficulty for these kids to save for college, affording a home, living the american dream. and the lifetime of earnings -- earning losses that all women face, including those women without children or whose children are growing up affects not only their well-being during their working lives, as i said earlier, their ability to save and have a decent retirement. now the evidence shows that discrimination accounts for much of the pay act. in fact, according to one study, when you look at all the reasons that there is a wage gap, well, we have rates 2.4%, 3.5% union status, labor force experienc
in the technology industry where it was mentioned that between 2010 2010-2020, the american economy will annually create more than 120,000 additional computer or science jobs that were require at least a bachelors degree. that's just mention one aspect of this. this is great news for many of our computer science students. and for joy that is the end of the good news. each year only about 40,000 american students receive bachelor degrees in computer science. in other words, there are approximately 80,000 new computer science positions every year in the united states cannot be filled by available american workforce positions. and i have positions that need to be filled so that our technology industry can continue to thrive. simply put, u.s. based companies have a great need for those trained in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. but at least right now there are not enough americans trained and ready to fill these jobs. we cannot continue to simply hope that american companies do not move operations to countries where they have greater access for individuals trained in these s.t.e
here is to help undocumented immigrants who are already a part of the this country's economy and he made the argument that helping them would help all americans. >> obama: every day, like the rest of us, they go out and they go out and trytry to earn a living. they often do that in a shadow of economy where employers may offer them less than minimum wage or make them work overtime without extra pay. when in a happens, it's not just bad for them but the entire economy. because all the business who is are trying to do the right thing thing, hire people legally following the rules, they are the ones who suffer. >> jennifer: he's right, the shadow economy hurts everyone, particularly the workers who are operating in it. 67% of domestic workers are paid below the minimum wage. less than 2% receive retirement or pension. 65% of those workers don't have health insurance and there is absolutely no recurs. 85% of undocumented immigrants who encounter problems in their working conditions didn't complain because of their shaky immigration status. they have reason to be concerned, that it woul
to bring down the debt. not just as a share of economy, but overall. you're right. it doesn't bring down the debt. at all. mr. speaker, that's the conflict that we face here as a people, as a country, not as republicans, not as democrats, but as a people. on the one hand, what our politicians are saying is we're going to use the money to pay down our debt. but what the reality is is that proposers are coming out today that never, ever, ever pay down a penny of debt. now, mr. speaker, if you want to see that for yourself, you can look. the president's budget each year is posted online, on the o.m.b. website. the first one he submitted, i hold the cover page here, was called a new era of responsibility. it was the first budget that the president ever submitted. but as i go through that budget, mr. speaker, what i see is projects -- proximates for 2020, for 20 -- projections for 2020, for 2030, for 2040, for 260 and for 2080 -- 20 of 6 -- 2060 and for 2080. you hear that, you have children. 2020, 2030, 2040, 2060 and 2080. and in each one of those years, according to the president's budget,
a new set of challenges after the commerce department reported yesterday that the nation's economy shrank for the first time since the great recession. >> how did that happen? >> well, government data shows the gross domestic product contracted at a .1% rate in the fourth quarter of 2012. it was the first decline since 2009. it put the white house on the defensive after months of touting steady job growth. >> there's more work to do, and our economy is facing a major headwind which goes to your point, and that's republicans in congress. talk about letting the sequester kick in, as though that were an acceptable thing belies where republicans were on this issue not that long ago, and it makes clear, again, that this is political brinksmanship of the kind that results in one primary victim, and that's american taxpayers, the american middle class. >> okay. what do you think is going on there, joe? >> i think what's going on is that we have spent more money as a government over the past four years than we have in the history of the republic. added $6 trillion in debt. and we have just
economy moving again instead of what seemed to be endless partisan struggles over secondary issues? and what i wanted to speak to today was a bipartisan bill which i'm introducing which focuses on how to help create innovation focused jobs again in the united states. as you know all too well, madam president, our economic recovery has been slower than we would hope, although it's been steady, there are still far too many americans out of work. in my home state of delaware, more than 30,000. but we are building our way ba back. so the task before us is to think not just about an immediate economic crisis but to take a breath i think and instead focus strategically on the long-term fewer, to take -- long-term future, to take an account of what kind of economy we want to build for our children, for our grandchildren, for the america of today and tomorrow. the engine of our nation's greatest economic successes has always been innovation. from the light bulb to the search engine, american inventors and innovators, those who've taken risks and started companies, have created jobs by the
the debt we can eliminate an additional drag on our economy. so this isn't a conversation about austerity. it is a conversation about growth and opportunity. that doesn't mean we're all going to agree on the path forward. americans certainly expect a serious policy debate. they expect both parties to offer competing plans to preserve and protect long-term entitlement programs and they expect both sides to propose different plans to get our fiscal house in order and our country back to economic health. now, republicans have done their part. the budget is passed by house republicans over the past couple of years contained fresh ideas that would help solve our fiscal crisis an. but from the democrats, so far not much. four years on, president obama and congressional democrats still have yet to offer a serious plan to address the economic challenges we face. they have been content to wage political war instead. it is my hope that the debate over the debt ceiling will finally move our friends on the other side beyond their preoccupation with the horse race. already, senate democrats have commi
debate. >> there is no question that the economy is what the elections are about. but i would point out to the scholars that there were two chefs in public opinion during this campaign. the first one came after the first debate. when suddenly, here came romney and people said, that look like obama was going to run away with it, and the second change came at the end of the democratic convention, after the speech by bill clinton. these chefs do change minds and i think fat they are one of the best parts of the campaign process and i think that we need to have more debates. >> but let me say to the scholars, they overlook the obvious and maybe that is why they are scholars. [laughter] no, that is applied -- that is not a put down. scholars need to go beyond the obvious. that is what makes them scholars. what is obvious is that 64 million people watched the first debate. four years ago was about the same number and there was no two-one change like there was in 2012 of what the debates too, they are confirming exercises. and the scholars tend to say, they did not change any votes and as a co
's the time to do this so we can strengthen our economy. and strengthen our country's future. think about it. we define ourselves as a nation of immigrants. that's who we are in our bones. the promise we see in those who come here from every corner of the globe, that's always been one of our greatest strengths. it keeps our workforce young. it keeps our country on the cutting edge. and it's helped build the greatest economic engine the world has ever known. after all, immigrants help start businesses like google and yaho yahoo!. they created new industries that created new jobs and new prosperity for our citizens. in recent years, one in four high-tech start-ups in america were founded by immigrants. one in four new small business owners were immigrants including right here in nevada. folks who came here seeking opportunity and now want to share that opportunity with other americans. but we all know that today we have an immigration system that's out of date and badly broken. a system that's holding us back instead of helping us grow our economy and strengthen our middle class. right now, we

developing this morning, news that the economy unexpectedly contracted in the last quarter of 2012. most of it is a result of weaker expo exports, decreased military spending and other factors. we'll be keeping an eye on the markets this morning to see how they react to this. there was an expectation that there would be some slowdown in the economy, but an actual contraction did catch a bunch of analysts off guard. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. speaking of the economy and jobs, they continue to be issues. the public says they care most about. but it isn't dominating capitol hill. does that change today, by the way? but guns and immigration are taking up most of the political oxygen, just about an hour from now. the next phase of the fight begins on the gun issue. former congresswoman gabrielle giffords returns to capitol hill two years after she was seriously injured in the mass shooting that killed six people in arizona. she will be joined by her husband, mark kelly. they face off with wayne lapierre. it's the first senate hearing on gun violence. >> the only thing t

to be an economy of force response. but, you know, first of all, you know, that has always been our -- other than actual the physical defense of the continental united states or the legal united states, you know, that's been our principal security interest ever since before we were a nation. it's clearly a moment in time where the -- and, of course, through history the patterns have gone back and forth between more autocratic and more liberal governments and regimes in that area. and we have a lot of partners with whom we could be working. we have had a, i mean, our model partnership with colombia which, you know, has been a pretty low-level thing, one which the house of representatives has traditionally kept very close tabs on is a model, counterinsurgency partnership. if we had aped that model in some of our middle east engagements, we would have been much better off also today. but it suggests that, um, again -- and it's possible to work with the brazilians, for example. the brazilians were the leading force in the u.n. mission in haiti. so it, some good things have been happening even while t
